Description: Bucks forward Larry Sanders will not play Thursday due to a suspension.
Insight: Sanders received his suspension for pushing Nicolas Batum in the back as he went up for a lay up. Zaza Pachulia is the best plug-in option while Sanders is out.
 
12/5/2014 8:37:00 PM
Description: Scratch our last update as Bucks forward/center Larry Sanders will play on Friday.
Insight: Milwaukee continues to rule players out only to then put them into the lineup. Sanders should be in all fantasy lineups because of the friendly matchup against the Heat.
 
12/5/2014 7:13:00 PM
Description: Bucks forward/center Larry Sanders will not play on Friday due to an illness.
Insight: It's too bad because Sanders had a friendly matchup against the Heat Friday. Zaza Pachulia is a decent plug-in option for daily leagues as he will take Sanders' spot.
 
11/26/2014 10:30:00 PM
Description: Bucks forward/center Larry Sanders shot 7-of-10 from the field for 15 points during Wednesday's victory against Minnesota.
Insight: He also had seven rebounds, five blocks, two assists, one steal, and four turnovers. Solid fantasy-night for Sanders.
 
11/19/2014 7:16:00 PM
Description: Bucks forward/center Larry Sanders is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Nets. UPDATE: Sanders is playing Wednesday night.
Insight: The Bucks scratched Sanders late on Tuesday and will likely do the same on Wednesday. Zaza Paculia will likely get the spot start and is a decent fantasy plug-in for Wednesday.
 
10/23/2014 7:11:00 PM
Description: Bucks forward/center is a double-double threat every night, but in the words of the great Charles Barkley, he is also a knucklehead.
Insight: Sanders missed a large portion of last season after breaking his thumb in a bar fight. Then he missed the end of the year after he broke his orbital bone when James Harden elbowed him in the face. Sanders will also miss the first five games of this season due to a drug suspension. When on the court though, he averaged 12.0 PPG and 11.1 RPG before the All-Star break in 2012-2013.

Insight: Sanders, who is done for the year with a facial fracture, was suspended for testing positive for marijuana. He'll get his suspension out of the way and be ready to go at the start of next season.

Description: Milwaukee PF/C Larry Sanders was given a five-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy. SOURCE: Adrian Wojnarowski, Yahoo Sports
Insight: He tested positive for marijuana. Sanders, who is already out with a facial fracture, will serve his suspension at the start of next season.
 
3/19/2014 2:01:00 PM
Description: Bucks center Larry Sanders confirmed he won't return this season, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Insight: Sanders suffered a fractured orbital bone and had to undergo surgery in mid-February. He had a miserable season after signing a four-year, $44 million contract extension last summer (which won't kick in until next season). The center missed six weeks after tearing a thumb ligament in a nightclub brawl and ended up averaging 7.7 points, 7.2 rebounds and 1.7 blocks in 23 games.
 
2/18/2014 7:21:00 PM
Description: According to Andrew Gruman of foxsportswisconsin.com, Bucks coach Larry Drew thinks Larry Sanders (face) won't be able to do any basketball activities for six weeks.
Insight: Sanders has been ruled out for at least six weeks due to a fractured orbital bone. If he's unable to do anything during that time his conditioning will fall behind, making him unlikely to play again this season.
 
2/14/2014 11:51:00 AM
Description: Milwaukee PF/C Larry Sanders will be out a minimum of six weeks after surgery on a fractured orbital bone, according to beat reporter Aron Yohannes.
Insight: At least its not a season-ending injury. With Ersan Ilyasova (back) out as well and John Henson struggling with a sore foot, Zaza Pachulia could have fantasy value.
 
2/10/2014 7:24:00 PM
Description: Milwaukee PF/C Larry Sanders is out indefinitely with a fractured orbital bone. SOURCE: Andrew Gruman, Fox Sports Wisconsin
Insight: It's not a season-ending injury but it should keep Sanders on the shelf for a while. With Ersan Ilyasova (back) out as well, it's anyone guess who the Bucks will start at power forward Monday against Boston.
 
2/9/2014 3:00:00 PM
Description: Bucks center Larry Sanders (right eye contusion) is questionable for Monday's game, according to Charles Gardner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Insight: Sanders took a shot to the face from James Harden in the first quarter Saturday night and didn't return due to blurred vision in his right eye. The 25-year-old center came into Saturday's game averaging 32 minutes, 13.4 points, 10.4 rebounds, 2.0 blocks and 1.0 steals in his last five games.
 
2/8/2014 10:21:00 PM
Description: Bucks center Larry Sanders has been ruled out for the rest of Saturday's game due to an eye injury. SOURCE: Andrew Gruman, foxsportswisconsin.com.
Insight: Sanders took a shot to the face from James Harden in the first quarter. He was considered probable to return at first but is dealing with blurred vision. The 25-year-old center came into Saturday's game averaging 32 minutes, 13.4 points, 10.4 rebounds, 2.0 blocks and 1.0 steals in his last five games.
 
2/8/2014 9:42:00 PM
Description: Bucks center Larry Sanders went to the locker room in the first quarter Saturday night after taking a shot to the face from James Harden, but he is probable to return for the second half. SOURCE: Andrew Gruman, foxsportswisconsin.com.
Insight: Sanders was poked in the eye and should be fine. The 25-year-old center came into Saturday's game averaging 32 minutes, 13.4 points, 10.4 rebounds, 2.0 blocks and 1.0 steals in his last five games.
 
1/31/2014 9:44:00 PM
Description: Bucks center Larry Sanders had his best game of the season Friday against Orlando, scoring 10 points, grabbing nine boards, blocking four shots and picking up four steals.
Insight: Sanders has played 33 minutes in back-to-back games and averaged 12 points, nine rebounds, 3.0 blocks and 2.0 steals. Fantasy owners have to hope Zaza Pachulia's return to action doesn't cause Sanders' playing time to decrease.
 
1/29/2014 7:03:00 PM
Description: Bucks center Larry Sanders (illness) said he'll play Wednesday, but admitted he doesn't have much energy, according to Andrew Gruman of foxsportswisconsin.com.
Insight: Sanders will come off the bench. The center has averaged just 24.7 minutes, 6.4 points, 6.4 rebounds and 1.8 blocks in 17 games this season.
 
1/29/2014 3:25:00 PM
Description: Milwaukee center Larry Sanders was back at shootaround today after missing Tuesday's practice because of the flu. He expects to play Wednesday versus Phoenix. SOURCE: Bucks PR on Twitter
Insight: Sanders has played exactly 21 minutes in each of his last three games. With John Henson emerging as one of the Bucks' best young players, we don't anticipate that number increasing anytime soon. For fantasy purposes, you better look elsewhere.
 
1/28/2014 10:38:00 AM
Description: Bucks big man Larry Sanders is questionable for Wednesday's game against Phoenix. He and guard O.J. Mayo are suffering from illness.
Insight: Sanders (6.4 ppg, 6.4 rpg, 1.8 bpg) will likely continue to backup John Henson at center. There's no reason to have him in your lineup.
 
1/24/2014 7:53:00 PM
Description: O.J. Mayo isn't the only player returning from an illness on Friday. His teammate Larry Sanders is also back after sitting out Wednesday against the Pistons. SOURCE: C.F. Gardner, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Insight: Apparently the illness has run its course. Sanders (6.7 ppg, 6.7 rpg, 1.8 bpg) will backup John Henson at center tonight against the Cavaliers. He'll probably be on a minutes limit so fantasy owners should lower their expectations.
